Verve April Release Hop ~ A Mod Combo


It's Verve release day! Woo-hoo! It's officially time to shop! But WAIT! The Divas would love to tickle your creativity some more before that wishlist becomes your shopping cart {tee-hee}. There's nothing wrong with having two browser's side by side getting a bit of inspiration and skipping the wishlist

You all have come from the Verve Stamp blog, right? Then your in the right spot.on the hop otherwise jump back to here to get some details and the master hop list and come right back. K?

I've got a little mod combo to share. It's using the Small Celebrations stamp set and A Cut Above Ribbon Banner Die. Take a look...


I'm in love with this sentiment set! With fabulous fonts and much needed sayings to add in my stamp collection, the smaller sized circle frame is what stole my heart. Love it.


Can you see the Ribbon Banner Die in action? {smile} Here's a sweet little favor cup using 8 of them. There's more to inspire you so I'll keep you no longer. Have fun shopping at the end!
